MOT Special Notice - Pro-Cut Helps Cure Imbalance
Some garages who carry out MOT testing are reporting to us an increase in use of the Pro-Cut brake lathe due to a recent VOSA change.
Special Notice 3-2013 states that imbalance, checked across all axles, is now measured at maximum brake effort only. This is causing some vehicles to fail and garages equipped with Pro-Cut have found the lathe to be a useful tool when correcting the imbalance, especially with rear brakes.
A quick disc skim together with cleaning brake components can often provide a quick and low-cost solution for the motorist.
